Bully Pulpit Games is looking for an artist! And not just any artist–we need someone with an uncommon style to work with us on our new tabletop, pencil-and-paper roleplaying game Durance.
Durance is set in a penal colony in the distant future. The art for the game consists of the sketches of a Marine Lance Corporal who is observing her strange and often terrible surroundings, telling the story of daily life in this remote and brutal outpost with pen and ink.
Our artist needs to be accomplished at sketch art. The look we’re after is observational slice-of-life, but the lives being observed are set in a gritty, industrial future on a remote planet. The individual pieces will have a pulled-from-a-notebook quality and will, as much as the text itself, introduce readers to the futuristic colony, her citizens, the convicts, and the lives they lead. As the artist on this project, you’ll be taking the lead in establishing the look and feel for this setting based on art direction and references we provide.
The art will be naturalistic and we are vigorously avoiding a typical RPG, animation, or comic book look. We want the pieces to really showcase what our imaginary Marine is observing day to day around her. Sketching styles vary and we don’t have a particular visual look in mind, as long as it is well-crafted and communicates the feel of the game.
